Climate Risk Finance for Rain-fed Farming in Sudan


Titre : Climate Risk Finance for Rain-fed Farming in Sudan

A country housing the largest number of displaced population, Sudan faces additional stress as a result of climate change. In particular, the increasingly unreliable nature of rainfall, together with its concentration into short growing seasons, heightens the vulnerability of Sudan’s rain-fed agricultural systems.

Country : Sudan

Climate-Related Hazards Addressed : Drought/Water Scarcity

Implementing Agencies & Partnering Organizations : Sudan Higher Council for Environment and Natural Resources (HCENR) ; UNDP ; GEF

This UNDP-supported, LDCF funded project, Climate Risk Finance for Sustainable and Climate Resilient Rain-fed Farming and Pastoral Systems in Sudan, therefore aims to create an enabling environment for climate risk management of smallholder farmers and pastoralists in rain-fed areas. This will include the establishment of an effective climate observation infrastructure to enable climate change resilient decision-making in local communities. At the same time, the project will also create a regulatory framework to develop and deliver micro credit and climate risk insurance services.

Primary Beneficiaries : The agricultural and pastoral community of Kassala, N Kordofan and Gedarif in Sudan

Funding Source :Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF)
* Financing Amount : $6,270,000 (As of 10 April 2012)
* Co-Financing Total : $12,200,000 (As of 10 April 2012)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (UNDP)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (ALM) UNDP : As an interactive online portal for sharing adaptation knowledge with improved availability and accessibility of knowledge for adaptation, the ALM has allowed for a broader dissemination of good adaptation practices
